We are about to begin the localization / translation / internationalization
of our products, and I'm facing several terms which I question are good
source words for translation. For example, we have many lists of things -
portfolios contain projects, projects contain steps, etc. We currently
refer to a page that displays the contents of a portfolio as a Portfolio
Summary, and one that contains the contents of a project as a Project
Is "summary" a good word for translators to deal with? Would other terms
such as "Portfolio Contents" or "Project List" be better? Any other ideas or
